Cicada - Haiku 174

cicada cries all night-
maybe she heard
her forests’ story

This had the quality of Issa's haiku, as i have read it, Nalini...the previous one was interesting, too :)

Melissa at Red Dragonfly -- brings us loads on Issa and haiku studies and her blog is fascinating; may be you would be interested :)

And it smiles at day break
Wondering at the beauty around.

I learnt of cicadas in school when we were on an educational trek. I used to always wonder what that sound was, which I always associated it with night time when I would go back to my hometown in Gujarat (you don't get to hear cicadas in Mumbai).

Lovely Haiku!! Brought back memories.
